And so concludes the Four-Of-A-Kind adventures ... via what turned into another Marisa Gear Solid. (The reason I'm not including the border-colors and the custom logo is because the MGS bits aren't part of the main attraction.) I made all the panels with Marisa before I made the other ones, by the way, except for panel 7. And then I got distracted by a formal analysis of Metal Gear Solid 2 ...

This is the first serious action sequence I've done (well, serious apart from using "QIPAO!" as a SFX). That said, I'm not above playing this sort of seriousness for laughs, either. And it resulted in the comic being fairly long ...

In case you couldn't read it,1 the text on Meiling's hat-badge says "I'm totally a dragon".

The "MISSION FAILEO" screen was cobbled together in about five or ten minutes, for use in subsequent (i.e. actual) MGS parodies. The "Do you want your possessions identified?" line is a reference to Nethack.

Transcript

  1. (Marisa flies through the SDM hallway on her broom.)
    Marisa: Dang ... it's loads easier to sneak into the library with everyone all distracted by Flandre, ze ...
  2. (Phoenix-winged-Mokou and Kaguya fight four Flandres against the latter's spell-card background.)
    Mokou: Argh, this is getting ridiculous!
    Kaguya: I know! And it's hard not using spellcards ...
  3. (Meiling rushes in; her hat reads "I'M TOTALLY A DRAGON." The Flandres react in surprise.)
    Mokou: Wha--!
    Meiling: I'll show you how it's done!
    Kaguya: M-Meiling!? But she's an EX-boss, and you're ...
  4. (Meiling kicks Flandre B into Flandre C, as the other two dodge.)
    Meiling: HI-YA!
    SFX: QIPAO!
  5. (Flandre D attempts to come up behind Meiling while Flandre A attacks from above; C and D go flying out of the panel.)
  6. (Meiling dragon-punches Flandre A, while Flandre D fires a yellow beam at where Meiling just was. Flandre B comes back into the panel.)
    Meiling: SHORYUKEN!
  7. (Marisa dodges the beam.)
    Marisa: Whoa! That was close!
  8. (Flandre C comes back into the panel as Meiling zips backward so that all four Flandres are in front of her.)
  9. (Meiling grabs Flandre D, who reflexively fires bullets, hitting the others.)
    Flandre D: Kyan!
  10. (Meiling kicks Flandre D, who launches four more bullets straight ahead. Flandre A and B are looking out of sorts.)
    SFX: kick
  11. (The bullets hit Marisa, who spews point-items. Patchouli enters.)
    Marisa: Ackpth!
    SFX: SPOOOOOOOON!
  12. (Flandre D lies on the ground. Meiling grabs Flandre A and B by the wings, advancing on Flandre C.)
  13. (Meiling slams Flandre A and B against Flandre C.)
    SFX: SLAM
  14. (Meiling triumphantly lands, while all but Flandre A vanish in puffs of smoke.)
    SFX: Poof
    SFX: Poof
    SFX: Poof
  15. (Marisa lies prone on the floor; this is inset in a Metal Gear Solid 2-style "mission failed" screen.)
    Patchouli: (arms spread) MISSION FAILEO!
    Marisa: Uh, what?
    Patchouli: Look at the message again.
    Text: MISSION FAILED (the D is identical to an O)
    Text: MISSION FAILEO
    Text: ASDFGHJKL 69105 ONOMATOPOEIA
    Text: CONTINUE/EXIT
    Text: You have died. Would you like your possessions identified? (Y/N)
    Text: fhqwhgads
  16. (Mokou and Kaguya approach Meiling.)
    Mokou: Okay, that was badass.
    Meiling: Heh ... no problem!
    Kaguya: It really was! Why don't you ever do that when Marisa invades?
  17. (Embarassed pause.)
    Text: .....
  18. Meiling: (teary-eyed) ... Because she always master sparks me before I can get near her.
    Kaguya: (sweatdrop) Ah ...
    Meiling: (aside) Martial arts are different from danmaku ...

Twilight

wow, I love the action stuff you manage to pull off in this comic

Kimiko Muffin

Heh, yeah, that seems to be the consensus I got, um, before I added the comment-system. Maybe I should do this kind of thing more often.

...I though the words on her hat's star read "I'm totally a CRAYON" ...Don't kill me >.< On another note, no wonder there's no comments on your earlier comics XP

PriffyViole

I lawl'd at Meiling's hat text.

Sanketsu

I love the subtle references to other stuff. Like nethack. ♥

linkhyrule5

Nethack ftw :p.

Meiling: (aside) Martial arts are different from danmaku... ;_;

I guess China fares way better in the fighting games than in the shmups... makes sense.
